This is a real crowd pleaser—one you can't really go wrong with—so get a little creative with toppings!Aquafaba MayonnaiseBy Grace JauwenaThis is the perfect light mayo for all your mayo needs! It’s much healthier than real mayo but doesn't lack in texture and flavor. The key to making plant-based mayo is the aquafaba liquid. The liquid comes from a can of cooked chickpeas or, alternatively, the leftover water from cooking your own chickpeas. This is a fun recipe to make, fast and easy, and a wonderful alternative to mayo with eggs. No one will know that you didn’t use eggs in this recipe… that is of course unless you tell them!Vegan Melted CheeseBy María HummelOne of the characteristics that people miss most about cheese when they stop using it is its texture when it melts.
